T-Boz

Tboz is bankrupt
T-Boz ain't too proud to beg -- just like TLC sang back in the 90s -- because she's filed for bankruptcy.

According to docs filed last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) found herself owing creditors $768,642.99 -- mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.

The docs don't paint a picture of exorbitant spending -- she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses totaling $8,821.

TLC had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy Awards ... but according to the docs, T-Boz only pulls in $1,200/month in royalties.

T-Boz might have dodged the bankruptcy bullet if she'd been able to collect the child support she claims she's owed -- which according to the docs is $250,000.

Calls to her attorney were not returned.

That's really too bad. TLC was a great group back in the day. I'm sorry to hear of Tionne's money troubles. Didn't she just have a brain tumor or something?/

Poor thing finding it difficult to live on $11,000 a month. Some people live on 11K a year.

If 12 grand a month isn't enough money for a single mother of one to live off of something is seriously wrong here. How about stop spending you money on nonsense, get a smaller, cheaper place, and try to remember your life BEFORE you blew up. Here's another idea. GET A JOB!

"she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses "totaling $8,821" = $140,400 a year. Sounds like she is still over spending. A classic example of someone who is wanting to live the higlife even if she can't afford it. Have a garage sale TBoz...

Truth    

SEE, THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG... ALL THESE FREAKIN ARTISTS, ACTORS, SPORTS PLAYERS, OR WHATEVER THE F*CK YOU WANNA CALL THEM HAVE NO SENSE OF FINANCE. WHY THE F*CK DO THEY PAY FOR BUSINESS MGRS WHEN THEY DONT DO ANYTHING?? HERE'S THE THING... WITH THE MONEY THEY MAKE THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO BUY HOME WITHOUT ANY MORTGAGE OR LOAN ATTACHED EVEN IF THAT MEANS SCALING DOWN. THEY SHOULD KNOW THEIR LAME CAREERS DONT LAST 4EVER. SO WHENEVER TMZ SHOWS FANCY CARS AND MANSIONS OF "CELEBS" THINK TWICE... CUZ THE DAMN MORTGAGE THEY PAY IS MORE THAN HOUSES AND SALARIES MOST PEEPS MAKE EVERY YEAR. NOW IF SHE BOUGHT A 300K-400K HOUSE OR CONDO THE BITCH WOULDNT BE IN THIS SPOT IN THE FIRST PLACE. SMFH. TRUTH!!
